God's glory is magnified. 12 If he turn not, he will whet his sword ; he hath bent his bow, and made it ready. 13 He hath also prepared for him the instruments of death ; he ordaincth his arrows against the persecutors. 14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood. 15 He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which lie made. 16 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down upon his own pate. 17 I will praise the Lok D according to his righteousness; and will sing praise to the name of the Lok D most high. PSAL. VIII. God's gloris is magnified by his works, and by his love to man. To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. o LoRD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the leavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger. 3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers; the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him 2 and the son of man, that thou visitest him 2 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 #. madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands ; thou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field ; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and 7thatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 O Lorp our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth ! PSAL. IX. 1 David fraiseth God for erecuting of judgment. 11 He inciteth others to fraise him. 13 He frayeth that he may have cause to fraise him. To the chief Musician upon Muth-labben, A Psalm of David. I WILL praise thee, O Lok D, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works. 2 I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I i. los praise to thy name, O thou Most igh. 3 When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence. 4 For thou hast maintained my right

and my cause; thou sattest in the throue judging right. 38

Selah. 17 'i'he wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God. 18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten : the expectation of the poor shall not perish for ever. 19 Arisc, O Lok D ; let not man prevail: let the heathen be judged in thy sight. 20 Put them in fear, O Lo R D : that the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah. PSAL. X. 1 David com/lainesh to God of the outrage of the swicked. 12 He firayeth for reinedy. 16 He firofesseth his considence. HY standest thou afar off, O Lok D 2 why hidest thou thyself in times of trouble 2 2 The wicked in his pride doth persecute the poor : let them be taken in the devices that they have imagined. 3 For the wicked boasteth of his heart's desire, and blesseth the covetous, whom the Lord abhorreth. 4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. 5 His ways are always grievous; thy loss are far above out of his sight:

6 He halo said in his heart, I shall not be moved : for I shall never be in adversity. 7 His mouth is full of cursing and deceit and fraud: under his tongue is mischief and vanity. 8 He sitteth in the lurking places of the villages: in the secret places doth he murder the innocent : his eyes are privily set against the poor. 9 He lieth in wait secretly as a lion in his den : he lieth in wait to catch the poor: he doth catch the poor, when he draweth him into his net. 10 He croucheth, and humbleth himself, that the poor may fall by his strong

11 He hath said in his heart, God hath
forgotten: he hideth his face; he will

12 Arise, O Lok D ; O God, lift up thine
hand : forget not the humble. . .
13 Wherefore doth the wicked con-
temn God 2 he hath said in his heart, |
Thou wilt not require it.
14 Thou hast seen it ; for thou be-
foldest mischief and spite, to requite it
with thy hand : the poor committeth
himself unto thee; thou’art the helper of
the fatherless.
15 Break thou the arm of the wicked
and the evil man : seek out his wicked-
tless till thou find none.
16 The LoR D is King for ever and ever:
the heathen are perished out of his land.
17 Lost D, thou hast heard the desire
of the humble: thou wilt prepare their
heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
18 To judge the fatherless and the op-
pressed, that the man of the earth may no
unore oppress.

2 The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God. 3 They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy : there is none that docth good, no, not one. 4 Have all the workers of iniq’,ity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they cat bread, and call not upon the Lor D, 5 There were they in so. fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LoRD is his refuge. 7 O that the salvation of Israel overe come out of Zion! when the Lok D bringeth back the captivity of his people, ..., shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.

In whose eyes a vile person is contemned ; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not. 5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved. . PSAL.

PSAL.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David, the servant of the LoRD, who spake unto the LoRD the words of this song in the day that the LoRD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul: And he said, WILL love thee, O Lord, my strength. 2 The Lon D is my rock, and my £ortress, and my deliverer; my God, my st , in whom I will trust ; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. 3 I will call upon the Lon D, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from minc enemies. 4 The sorrows of death compassed me, and the floods of ungodly men made me

l 5 The sorrows of hell compassed me about: the snares of death prevented me. 6 In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried unto my God: he heard my yoice out of his temple, and my cry came before him, even into his ears. 7 Then the earth shook and trembled ; the foundations also of the hills moved


and were shaken, because he was wroth. 8 There went up a smoke out of his nostrils, and fire out of his mouth devoured: coals were kindled by it. 9 He bowed the heavens also, and came down: and darkness ovas under his feet. 10 And he rode upon a cherub, and did fly : yea, he did fly upon the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness his secret place; ‘his pavilion round about him overe dark waters and thick clouds of the skies. 12. At the brightness that was before him his thick clouds passed, hail stones and coals of fire. 13 The LoRD also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stoncs and coals of fire. 14 Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them ; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. 15 Then the channels of waters were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lo R D, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils. 16 He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters. 17 He delivered me from my strong enemy, and from them which hated me: for they were too strong for me. 18 They prevented me in the day of my calamity : but the Lo R D was my stay. 19 He brought me forth also into a large place; he delivered me, because he

Therefore hath the Lon D recompensed me according to my righteousness, according to the cleanness of my hands in his eyesight. 25 With the merciful thou wilt shew thyself merciful ; with an upright man thou wilt shew thyself upright; 26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure ; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward. 27 For thou wilt save the afflicted people ; but wilt bring down high looks. 28 For thou wilt light my candle: the Lor D my God will enlighten my darkness. 29 For by thcc I have run through a troop ; and by my God have I leaped over a wall. 30 Ms for God, his way is perfect: the word of the Lo R D is tried : he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. 31 For who is God save thc LoRD 2 or
